I'm having a great day – nothing hurts.
Trust me, that's no minor thing in my life. See, I've suffered from chronic lower back pain since I was 15, and my neck has hurt since my early 20s.
For years, I have relied on Advil Liqui-Gels and Biofreeze menthol rub for daytime relief. I also took muscle relaxants to combat night spasms that would keep me awake.
However, those pains are quickly becoming just memories because I have found what is, so far, giving me amazing results.
It's a substance the human race has used for centuries. It's all natural and very effective. It's also a compound that is sweeping 33 states and the District of Columbia.
Of course, I'm talking about cannabis.
Make no mistake, the substance that used to be demonized in the United States has great medicinal properties.
In fact, I'll be talking about how to profit from medical aspects of marijuana at the National Institute for Cannabis Investors (NICI) in Las Vegas on Thursday.
With that in mind, I'd like to offer you a preview of my talk and reveal a unique, high-yield cannabis investment…
Now then, I've been following the medical aspects of marijuana formally since California became the first state to legalize it back in 1996.
But as a longtime biotech investor and analyst, I already knew this could be a big breakthrough.
Yes, it took nearly 20 years to reach critical mass, but this is now an unstoppable force with lots of profits at hand for savvy life sciences investors – like you.
And the good news is that cannabis is set to be a huge disruptor of the global drug industry that is worth more than $1.2 trillion a year.
Why the Medical Cannabis Angle Is So Lucrative
For my money, the long haul is very bright indeed. That's why the title of my NICI talk is "Cash In on the World's Only Universal Drug."
Consider that the list of conditions for which cannabis may prove highly effective now totals 172. We're talking everything from nausea to pain management to anxiety to blindness to epilepsy to multiple sclerosis.
Let me be clear. No other drug can make this claim.
Cannabis is so powerful as a medical agent because our bodies are literally wired to receive it. See, humans have an endocannabinoid system. It reaches into every major section of the body and allows our cells to communicate with cannabis directly.
I use a non-psychoactive balm on my neck and back three or so times a day. I used to take Advil three times a day, but that is now down to roughly twice a week. I try to avoid the muscle relaxants, except for when I'm on a long flight.
Don't scoff at the medical angle. While the nation moves toward full legalization, it's the biotech aspect that is the big driver here.
It's why more than twice as many states have made medical marijuana legal as those that have allowed recreational use.
As savvy tech investors, what we are looking for is a broad backend play. We want to avoid the risk inherent in investing in a single new drug while capturing the broad upside that medical marijuana holds.
That's where this cannabis stock comes in…

That's because, as a consultant, senior adviser, and board member for Silicon Valley venture capital firms, Michael enjoys privileged access to pioneering CEOs, scientists, and high-profile players. And he brings this entire world of Silicon Valley "insiders" right to you...
- He was one of five people involved in early meetings for the $160 billion "cloud" computing phenomenon.
- He was there as Lee Iacocca and Roger Smith, the CEOs of Chrysler and GM, led the robotics revolution that saved the U.S. automotive industry.
- As cyber-security was becoming a focus of national security, Michael was with Dave DeWalt, the CEO of McAfee, right before Intel acquired his company for $7.8 billion.
This all means the entire world is constantly seeking Michael's insight.
In addition to being a regular guest and panelist on CNBC and Fox Business, he is also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated writer and reporter. His first book Overdrawn: The Bailout of American Savings warned people about the coming financial collapse - years before the word "bailout" became a household word.
Silicon Valley defense publications vie for his analysis. He's worked for Defense Media Network and Signal Magazine, as well as The New York Times, American Enterprise, and The Wall Street Journal.
And even with decades of experience, Michael believes there has never been a moment in time quite like this.
Right now, medical breakthroughs that once took years to develop are moving at a record speed. And that means we are going to see highly lucrative biotech investment opportunities come in fast and furious.
To help you navigate the historic opportunity in biotech, Michael launched the Bio-Tech Profit Alliance.
His other publications include: Strategic Tech Investor, The Nova-X Report, Bio-Technology Profit Alliance and Nexus-9 Network.
